Living Well with a Bad Diagnosis - Lung Disease

Wednesday, May 27, 2015


So the doctor looked into my ear yesterday and pulled back in horror. Pus. Lots and lots of pus behind the ear drum. "It may rupture," he said. That explains half of my face being swollen. My teeth hurt on that side. But, I don't have any wrinkles!

I ended up going to an immediate care place on the other side of the pass. He gave me a gel for my eyes - also full of pus - and some major antibiotics. Cephalrxin. 500 mgs four times a day.

It was a bad night. I coughed constantly and am worried about the MRI today. Can I lay still for an hour? No sneezing. No coughing. This may not work. Afterwards, I am coming home and sleeping.

Our big speech is tomorrow. I am hoping that the antibiotics kick in and that I feel better.
